Ribbons options are available depending on the needs of the organization. The EZ ribbon offers the easy-to-use disposable cartridge which is simple to load and replace.

  1. an Avon Security Products customer

    Had this installed on our wireless network and printing within 10 minutes of opening the box. The footprint is modest, the machine is quiet, and the print quality is very good. I’ve always had good luck with Fargo printers!

  2. an Avon Security Products customer

    I have owned and reviewed many printers including many from Fargo, but this one was the easiest to unpack, set up and use of all of them. The ease of use and quality of print is right up there with the best of them at a great price. If you are looking for a compact, affordable, easy to use, yet quality printer–THIS IS IT!

  3. an Avon Security Products customer

    The printer is a wonderful, compact little beast. Setting up the wireless was confusing at first, but Avon tech support made the process simple. It’s quiet, the printing is sharp, and it’s got a classy design.

  4. an Avon Security Products customer
